Render Unto Hillary The Things That Are Hillary's

Mother Mary, help us:

On Wednesday, Perry's political action committee, RickPAC, announced that Jamie Johnson had joined as senior director. According to The Des Moines Register, Johnson will be working for RickPAC in Iowa and other early Republican primary states.

Johnson, an ordained minister, is a former radio broadcaster who previously served as the director of outreach for Iowa Right to Life and the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition.

In 2012, he served as Iowa coalitions director for former Sen. Rick Santorum's (R-PA) presidential campaign. During that campaign cycle, The Des Moines Register reported an email Johnson sent to a friend in which he said that children's lives would be in danger if the country elected a female president.

"The question then comes, 'Is it God's highest desire, that is, his biblically expressed will,…to have a woman rule the institutions of the family, the church, and the state?" Johnson wrote in the email.

Yes, for example:

  • Micah 6:4 - For I brought thee up out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed thee out of the house of servants; and I sent before thee Moses, Aaron, and Miriam.
  • Judges 4:4 - And Deborah, a prophetess, the wife of Lapidoth, she judged Israel at that time.

So when a woman is elected president, Johnson better remind his flock of Romans 13:

1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.

3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same.

Don't want to piss of G-d?  Be good, obey the law of the land, and she'll look kindly upon you.

I'm always curious to see how well these guys pass the "do not bear false witness" test.

I'd also be curious to hear him on that right-wing idol, Maggie Thatcher and Golda Meir. I don't recall Israel being considered as having been smoten during her rule. Be curious to know how the fundamentalists Zionist Christians would explain her.

Mags and Golda were very mannish. Or something.
